In this class you can choose your drawing medium: pencil, charcoal, pastel pencil or colored pencil. Choose the medium you are most familiar with to start. You can try the others during class. We will work from photos of various domestic & wild animals. Learn the secrets to creating great fur, hair, and feathers. Learn to break down animals into their basic elements and shapes, see their edges, notice positive & negative space and perspective. Blind contour drawing will enhance your understanding of how to render what you are looking at in a realistic manner quickly. Learn how to shade animals based on lighting and fur direction. And you will get a chance to bring in favorite photos of your pets to draw.
